I've made over 605% return in 2014 so far. Veteran (U.S. Army). Sometimes you just have to grab the "Bull" by the horns. Anything I say is my own personal opinion. Discretion advised. ((Remember don't follow the momentum, do your research first.))
It's a mistake to blindly follow anyone, including "experts" and media. I've been too greedy and too fearful. Learning candlesticks, watching RSI. Mistakes can be great teachers. Disclaimer: My musings are ideas, not investment advice.
